<BTW, My light is wobbly as well>
I cut lengths of rubber fuel hose, slit them lengthwise on one side, slid them over the edges of the plastic surrounding the taillight above and below. No more wobbly. Here's pix of my AQ kit from an older thread.

Greetings guys. Brownthecloun, as I observed the pictures of your bike in the tidy tail posts, I have noticed a curious thing. You have the rear fender plastics from the <=2018 AT, but your exhaust is from the 2016-2017 models. I happen to have an 2017 AT, and I want to do what you did with yours. Can describe what do you bought and did?

Best regards and better adventures

T C. I'll take close up picts and post so you can see. Welded aluminum angle to a hand formed piece of .09 aluminum plate. Use original mounting holes with longer bolts. Don.

It's rubber mounted like most of the current Honda range with the same lamp,
